About the Book

A future Nation which was once to be believed America has been divided into twelve areas, and every year as a reminder to not rebel against the government, each area (district) has to send in one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to fight to the death. Only one can survive. 
I chose this book because it was one of the first books that really got me into reading. I found the protagonist to be a personal hero, as someone who shows strength, weakness, and just full vulnerability. She does everything to her fullest potential because she just wants to protect her family, and those that she loves. This book made me feel that I can do anything, even as a female.
